This week I share the fourth of sixteen stories from my next release Love Scenes From the Black Market, a dark anthology.
This week’s snippet is the opening 8 sentences from Minotaur Love Song, a very short tale about a most unusual relationship that forms between a girl who hates her mother and a monster in the woods.
She sits in a stream, cool water, no place to go.
Why do they hate me so much? I’m only ever nice to them, but she always says she hates me.
You’re no good, Mother said, you don’t do anything right.
Fine, then I’ll leave.
It comes from the woods, black and bestial, with a horned head and dark skin like metal.
[She’s so beautiful, sitting there in the water, like a statue of flesh. I don’t like the daylight…why does there have to be so much light?]
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
